Lowe: No longer a Swank accessory.
C-list celebrity Chad Lowe
comes to town on Saturday to give both of his Cleveland fans a sneak peek at his new movie, Beautiful Ohio
. Dayton-born Lowe directed the coming-of-age film set in Shaker Heights. It co-stars William Hurt
and Mrs. Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson
, neither of whom needs to come to Cleveland to promote a movie . . . yet.
Lowe, best known as Rob Lowe's baby bro and Hilary Swank
's soon-to-be-ex, was famously left out of Swank's I'd-like-to-thank-my-manicurist-and-my-dog-and-I-don't-think-I-forgot-anybody victory speech at the 2000 Oscars following her Best Actress win for Boys Don't Cry
. While we're hoping for a scene in Lowe's movie that skewers the burger-lovin' Swank
, we'll probably have to settle for the onscreen eye candy supplied by the now-legal Michelle Trachtenberg
and hot 40-year-old Julianna Margulies
. Lowe answers your questions following the Beautiful Ohio
screening at the Cinematheque
at 3:30 p.m. -- Michael Gallucci
